Try: False Lashes
Applying false lashes can be intimidating, especially on the lower lash line. Skip strip lashes and opt for a few individual pieces to make eyes pop. Start by trimming them if they're too long and apply a dot of clear lash glue before placing sporadically under real lashes. Finish with a coat of mascara and no one will know they're fake.
